I need help deciding which code would be good for my application


#1

Hi everyone,
I know html, css and my website now runs on wordpress. I want to create a web application for my travel agency. Something like this website: klook.com

And maybe if it’s easy to learn, i would like to integrate flights using travelport’s universal API.

Can anyone guide me choosing which language to learn? Python, Ruby or something else?

Your help would be very much appreciated!
Thank you!

It sounds like your putting a lot of hay on your wagon. But here are some tips.

I would recommend starting with Javascript since you don’t have any experience with any logic coding languages. This is used for the client side stuff (for example: showing the menu when hovering over an menu item.). This could also be used for database calls but it is not recommended.

If you are comfortable with this you might want to do some research what language looks most friendly to you. Almost every language has the possibility to be used for a website. Using a framework for this big of project is probably also advised.

Thank you so much for your help, I’ll go with the easy stuff first, then will see if I can learn the harder languages.

The languages isn’t even the hardest part, the hardest part is putting everything together in a solid way.

A website consist of two parts: front-end and back-end.

Javascript is your only scripting language at front-end, at the back-end you have a whole range of options (nodeJS, php, python, ruby, golang to name a few). One thing you will need to pick up for sure is SQL. You will need it for the database (which your applications is going to need)
